Top 10 games from 2019: No. 10

No. 10: Windham 28, Central 21 

Windham’s seven-point victory earned the final spot on this year’s list primarily because of how the game ended.

There were 23.9 seconds remaining in a tie game when Windham’s Bobby DiCicco took a handoff from quarterback Rocky Heres on Central’s 28-yard line. DiCicco rumbled to the Central 7 when he lost control of the ball, which fell to the turf and found its way into the end zone. Fortunately for the Jaguars, Mason Belsky pounced on the ball to score what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown with 10 seconds to play.

It was a night of fumbles for Windham. With 2:30 remaining in the third quarter of a 14-14 game, Windham’s Stephen Mague lost the football on the Jaguars’ 27, allowing Central’s Raheen Dukes Jr. to scoop and score to help the Little Green take a 21-14 lead.

Things got bleaker for the Jaguars when Windham fumbled the ball away on its first drive of the fourth quarter. Central’s ensuing drive stalled, however, and Heres connected with Joey DaSilva for a 43-yard TD pass that helped even the score.

Heres had two TD passes in the game, the first being an 11-yard strike to Cole Stephens with 12.6 seconds left in the second quarter. That TD and the ensuing PAT cut Central’s lead to 14-7.

Central quarterback Tyler Gilroy also tossed for two scores. Both went to Shawn McGarvey (38 and 5 yards). Those two touchdowns gave Central a 14-0 lead with 1:33 remaining in the first half.

Dicicco scored Windham’s other TD on a 15-yard run.
